Winter is coming!!!

Evening D&D fans. We are a week and a half out from Winter Fantasy 45 and just wanted to share some notes and updates.

1 – Remember you must be vaccinated to attend Winter Fantasy. This is a full initial vaccination (1 or 2 shots depending on which one you got) but the booster is not required (but appreciated). We will accept your vaccination card, a picture of the card, or your state/country approved app showing your vaccination status. You make a good faith effort to show us and we’ll make a good faith effort to take care of you. Once you have shown your proof you will get a wristband for the weekend so you will not have to continually show proof.

2 – Masks are required in the Winter Fantasy space in the Grand Wayne Convention center unless actively eating or drinking...

Winter Fantasy 46 (2022) is Upon Us!!!

It is time to come home

Two years ago we all left Winter Fantasy 44 with our normal hugs, fist bumps, and saying “We will see you all soon again my friends”. Then it happened. The thing that shall not be mentioned. We were scattered to the corners of this spinning ball of dirt. Our friends so far away, our dice longing to be rolled, and our storage of hugs reaching critical mass wanting to get back out.

It is time to come home.

Winter Fantasy 46 will happen from Feb 2nd to Feb 6th in wonderful cold and snowy downtown Fort Wayne (the city that hates money). We will be in person again for the first time in to long and it feels good. We will be safe though in these changing times. Winter Fantasy will be a 100% vaccinated show...

Winter Fantasy 45 Registration goes Live Jan 21st

Winter Fantast 45 registration will go live at some point between 7pm-9pm EST (GMT -5) on Thursday – January 21st. There will not be an exact time given (reasons listed below).Please note some important details:

If you keep hitting F5 before registration opens you are just going to get locked out of the system for 30 minutes and miss it. DON’T DO IT!!! Registration will open in the time frame stated – we will make an announcement once that happens. Not only does spamming F5 prevent this from happening (as it crushes the server and Dave cannot update the registration flag to “Open”) it will eventually cause the server to mark you as a DOS attack and will lock you out. DON’T DO IT!!!

Putting something in your cart does not hold it for you...

Winter Fantasy 2021 DM Registration

Welcome to D&D in the cloud. We’re taking what you’ve all been doing around the table for years and bringing it to the world. You’ll have a chance to train your skills, make a name for yourself, and some cash along the way. You’ve worked hard raising your DM chops to this level and now it is time to reward yourself.

Winter Fantasy, in a normal world, is our cozy little show in Fort Wayne, IN in the cold and dark winter of the Midwest. Since the mid-70’s D&D royalty new and old have made the mecca to roll dice, meet friends new and old, and to play games with their gaming brethren. This year is no different – just less driving, more gaming, and you can wear shorts without frostbite (not that frostbite is a worry for The Baldman – he is part frost giant).

Winter Fantasy 2021 goes Virtual

It’s Friday everyone!!!! The weekend is ahead and hopefully you have some physical distanced interaction with friends planned.

With that some bad news. Most probably knew it was coming but it’s official now.

There will be no in-person Winter Fantasy in February next year. With us setting new infection rate records daily, winter coming, and no vaccination plan in sight we just cannot run WF the way WF needs to be run and keep everybody safe. If we ran the show and somebody got sick or even worse took it back to an older family member who got sick it would crush me.

Now the good news to counter that. We will of course 100% be having a virtual Winter Fantasy over those same dates...

Winter Fantasy 2020 Registration and Hotel Block Closed

We still have plenty of badges and tickets to accommodate any last second friends that want to tag alone. We will also have charity raffles onsite to upgrade your normal game ticket to an Author Only event in certain slots. More details onsite.

Winter Fantasy 2020 Registration is now Open

The title, as usual, say it all gang. Registration for Winter Fantasy 2020 is now open. Tickets will fly fast so get those clicking fingers to work.

If you are experiencing any problems with the system please head here and drop us a line and we will work as quickly as we can to get it cleared up.

Please note – “I had a ticket in my cart and something went wrong and now it is gone and sold out” is not something we can correct. 99 out 100 times what happened is somebody else also had that ticket and checked out right before you did. Tickets are first come first serve and your email confirmation of your checkout is the deciding factor.

Thanks
